Welcome to Books Abroad

We help to educate children worldwide by sending free school books that are carefully chosen to match the need of each school.


Books Abroad promotes literacy, education and understanding, which provide the means of a sustainable escape route from the plight of poverty.  We recycle used books by sending them to schools and other institutions in developing countries.  We should aspire to meet the worldwide demand for recycled books, whilst maintaining a quality level of service.


Books Abroad believes that, in the long term, education is what is required to help solve the world's problems. With the power to read and write, the children of today will have a better understanding of the issues surrounding them.

Better communication skills will help them to avoid conflicts and resolve disputes of all kinds by negotiation.
